What can you use the app for?

Monitive is a handy website uptime tracking tool that keeps the user in the know when it comes to availability of their web content. The service diversifies itself by providing a long list of appealing features as well as the ability to track email, DNS, MySQL, Ping and FTP servers. A keyword checking function makes it easy to check up on every page, not just the homepage. An automated diagnosis is triggered after a monitored site goes down for three minutes or more to help streamline the repair process. Users can check their website availability in over ten countries, including the U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, New Zealand and Romania.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Monitive has earned itself some positive reviews and comments on the web. This really comes as no surprise because the application has a lot to offer. Perhaps the only truly surprising part is that the application hasn’t received more responses on the web than it already has. The application was founded in April of 2011. Today, Monitive continues to offer an attractive list of options that help users monitor availability of their websites and servers.

What are the differences to other apps?

Monitive stands out because the service doesn’t skim when it comes to features. Users can choose between email, Twitter or SMS alert options and can track accessibility in more than ten countries around the globe. The keyword checking tool is very convenient because it gives users another way to utilize their SEO when tracking accessibility, even down to their deepest subpages. The application can monitor nine different internet services, performs automatic diagnosis and offers performance monitoring tools.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Monitive has a very professional feel to it that still retains the site’s charming personality.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can try Monitive by clicking the orange “See Plans and Pricing” button or the green “Sign Up” link on the homepage. The site asks for a full name and email address. The user is taken to their dashboard with a note that states that a confirmation email has been sent and must be accessed to complete registration. If the user does not confirm the account it will be deleted after seven days. The user can continue (without account confirmation) by filing in their time zone, password and website URL.
